Adorable Little Bed Jacket with Hood
by Susan Crawford
Made in a delicate 4 ply wool this beautiful bed jacket can be worn for day or evening and comes in sizes from 30-54 inches. The gorgeous hood elegantly frames the face and folds effortlessly onto the shoulders. The 4 row pretty lace stitch used throughout is a great introduction to lace knitting particularly as the pattern has minimal shaping allowing the knitter to concentrate on mastering the stitch pattern.
Based on the popular bed jackets of the late 1940s with glamorous puff sleeves, while the gathered hood gives the jacket a more contemporary feel.
